I pretend not to care

But even I can hear

I know that you're there

Feeding on my fear

-

I try to hear silence

But noise still comes through

Why must you use violence

And spread rumors, too?

-

The rumors are nasty

Make me seem like a whore

This gossip is ghastly

When the truth is a bore

-

So go and belittle me

And come make me cry

But soon, ain't you gonna be

Shocked when I die?


Yeah, so this is a poem about how rumors can destroy someone's life. One thing leads to the next, and sooner or later they'll get too big.
